Governor Perry supports sending troops to Mexico

Gov. Rick Perry said deploying U.S. soldiers to Mexico should be one option to curb drug cartel violence in border cities, but only if Mexico invites the Americans.

“I think we have to use every aspect of law enforcement that we have, including the military,” Perry said during an interview Thursday with MSNBC. “I think you have the same situation as you had in Colombia.”

Perry, the new chairman of the Republican Governors Association, has been touring the country promoting his anti-Washington book, “Fed Up!”

The governor’s spokeswoman, Katherine Cesinger, said Perry was simply responding to a question and counted U.S. military involvement in Mexico as one of many options the federal government should consider.

Governor Perry supports sending troops to Mexico

Texas Governor Rick Perry is a MORON!

Perry has NO CLUE concerning the depth of corruption that exists in our neighbor to the south. He is also, quite obviously, NOT a student of history or current events.

America is NOT the policeman of the world.

The bottom line is we need to keep all of our options on the table when talking about how to deal with the effects of this drug war, and how to protect Americans against the effects of this drug war,” Cesinger said Friday.

The ONLY option that we need to consider is this: SECURE THE BORDER!

If Rick Perry wants to use troops, let them be used in a way that is effective. Let them patrol OUR border, and the waterways of the Gulf of Mexico and the Pacific Ocean. Let them stop the ILLEGALS that are crossing our borders. Let them stop the cartels that are bringing their poisons into this nation. Let them secure that border and stop the influx of Muslim insurgents. An everyday activity itself.

In the interview, Perry said the Mexican government would need to approve of U.S. intervention.

Ricardo Alday, a spokesman for the Mexican Embassy in Washington, D.C., said such an invitation would never happen.

Mexico, it’s people and government, don’t want U.S. troops on their soil in any way, shape, form or fashion. The American people, and most of our government, don’t want U.S. troops in Mexico. Well, if you don’t count some moron like Rick Perry.

“Mexico has reiterated on repeated occasions that the presence of U.S. troops on Mexican soil is not and will not be an option,” Alday said in a statement. “It seems that some U.S. politicians insist on electoral campaigning, even as the election ended November 2.”

Perry won a third term as governor that day and has said he is not running for president.

Perry says he isn’t running for POTUS in 2012? Isn’t that what they all say? The Mexicans have Perry’s number as much as most Texans do. Look for Perry to begin an exploration in the near future.

In his national television appearance, he said the U.S. government has been deficient in securing the country’s southern border from drug gangs.

“The fact of the matter is these are people who are highly motivated with money. They are vicious. They are armed to the teeth, and I want to see them defeated,” Perry said.

He also said the United States should use any means “to run these people off our border and to save Americans’ lives.”

Perry has a good idea once in a while. Then he goes off the reservation with his ‘we need OUR troops in Mexico’ thing. If we send OUR troops to Mexico it doesn’t need to be a cross-border, joint task force operation. It needs to be a full blown invade and conquer move, right after massive carpet bombing of ALL Mexican cities. You have to soften up the objective!

Do ANY of you see that ever happening? It won’t happen under Obama, that is a certainty.

Neither Perry nor his spokeswoman specified how sending U.S. soldiers into Mexico would help quell the violence.

As said previously, Perry has NO CLUE. He can talk, he can campaign, he can BS his Texas GOP base into making him the longest serving Governor in Texas history, but when it comes to the violence on our border, when it comes to the best way to stop that violence and secure our borders, Perry is clueless on what to do or how to do it.
